TV Ratings: 'The Rookie' Scores Season Highs With 'American Idol' Lead-In
ABC's The Rookie scored season highs in the same-day ratings Sunday with an assist from American Idol. The two shows helped ABC top the night in adults 18-49.
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist also ticked up in the 18-49 demo on NBC, and is showing some promise on digital platforms.
American Idol held up pretty well vs. its premiere a week ago, drawing a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.46 million viewers (vs. 1.5 and 8.07 million last week). The Rookie delivered a 0.8 in the demo and 4.89 million viewers, beating its previous season highs of 0.7 and 4.11 million for its season premiere.
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist improved a little in adults 18-49, notching a 0.5 for NBC. Good Girls maintained the 0.4 for its premiere last week.

CBS' 60 Minutes was the most-watched show in primetime with just under 9 million viewers, along with a 0.8 in adults 18-49 (up from 8.03 million and 0.6 the previous week). God Friended Me (5.96 million, 0.6) and NCIS: New Orleans (5.56 million, 0.6) also improved in both measures, and NCIS: Los Angeles (6.18 million, 0.6) added about 130,000 viewers and was even with last week in the 18-49 demo.
